Australia reports 1,607 COVID-19 cases as states learn to live with virus Health personnel work inside a coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccination clinic set up for residents of surrounding public housing towers in the Redfern suburb, where authorities are working to contain an emerging cluster of cases, as widespread lockdown continues in Sydney, Australia, September 17, 2021. REUTERS/Loren Elliott MELBOURNE, Sept 19 (Reuters) - Australia reported 1,607 new coronavirus cases on Sunday as states and territories gradually shift from trying to eliminate outbreaks to living with the virus. Victoria, home to about a quarter of Australia's 25 million people, recorded 507 cases as its premier said a weeks-long lockdown will end once 70% of those 16 and older are fully vaccinated, whether or not there are new cases. Premier Daniel Andrews said the state might reach that vaccination threshold around Oct. 26. About 43% Victorians have been fully vaccinated and just over 46% people nationwide. "We will do so cautiously, but make no mistake, we are opening this place up. There is no alternative," Andrews said. We "cannot perennially or permanently suppress this virus. Lockdowns have been about buying time to get to 70% and 80% vaccination." Many social distancing restrictions will remain and retail and hospitality venues will be limited, but people will be free to leave their house without a reason. Andrews said the authorities aim to have 80% of the state's eligible population fully vaccinated in time for the Nov. 2 Melbourne Cup, leaving the door open for crowds on track at Australia's most famous horse race. The COVID-19 plan follows a federal scheme that will end lockdowns at a 70% vaccination rate and gradually reopen international borders at 80%. New South Wales has adopted a similar plan. Australia's most-populous state reported 1,083 cases on Sunday as it uses lockdowns and vaccination blitzes to fight an outbreak of the Delta variant that began in mid-June. The state, home to Sydney, eased some restrictions on gathering on Sunday. Some 52% of people have been vaccinated in New South Wales.

Debrett’s Peerage & Baronetage, a snob’s guide to Britain’s aristocracy, feels as though it ought to be written on vellum and served by butlers, rather than hosted on internet servers. Austen’s “Persuasion” opens with Sir Walter Elliot thumbing the Baronetage’s much-loved pages. Nancy Mitford mocked its chronicles of “ancestors with P.G. Wodehouse names” and “Walter Scott fates”. In Evelyn Waugh’s “Brideshead Revisited”, when Sebastian Flyte is asked about his family, he says crisply: “There are lots of us. Look them up in Debrett.” Its tissue-fine pages used to whisper discreetly of a forgotten world, one of silver spoons and iron conventions that covered the correct way to address a duke (“Your Grace”); a duke’s daughter (“Your Ladyship”) and “Divorced Ladies” (however you like). But as times change, so must formats. When the queen has a Twitter account (@RoyalFamily) and 4.6m followers, it was perhaps inevitable that Debrett’s would move online. It has also branched out, not quite selling the family silver but allowing the lower classes to gaze on it, like an aristocrat opening the country seat for afternoon teas. It offers advice on etiquette, including table manners (“it is vulgar to bite into bread”); Zoom (“never eat on-screen”); and social kissing (“under no circumstances should there be a suggestion of saliva”). Keeping it perfectly up to date is, says Wendy Bosberry-Scott, its editor, all but impossible, since “people are born, get married and die every day”. Here, being digital is an advantage. One year a particularly important duke died the day it went to press: Debrett’s had to call the printer and replace the page. “It cost a fortune.” The entire database, dating back to 1769, is now searchable: 2,000 hereditary titles, more than 700 life peers and around 150,000 assorted relatives—or, as Debrett’s calls them, “collateral” (aristocrats, like accidents, cause fallout).

Sosebee said this conference - the first in-person gathering since the 2020 cycle - was a chance for her colleagues to support each other after a difficult year. Georgia in particular saw intense national scrutiny, viral misinformation and threats against election workers for counting the votes from former President Donald Trump and his allies, including an infamous call to Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to "find" enough votes to alter the outcome in his favor. 'This Was A Scam': In Recorded Call, Trump Pushed Official To Overturn Georgia Vote Unease in the elections sphere has been a nationwide problem since last November, with a recent survey finding one in three election officials feels unsafe doing their job. Despite Raffensperger and other Republicans pushing back against false claims of fraud and misconduct, Douglas County supervisor Milton Kidd said state officials aren't doing enough to keep longtime workers from leaving. Douglas County Elections Director Milton Kidd says election officials are not doing enough to retain elections workers after a difficult 2020.

"The state of Georgia is at a point of crisis," he said. "The level of institutional knowledge we're losing because of the state, either directly or indirectly, not defending election workers is creating an atmosphere of mistrust - not just around the elections process but around elections workers themselves." Kidd used his presentation about the absentee voting process to uplift his fellow colleagues and remind them that what they do year round is important. "Despite the opinions of others, despite the feelings of others - because it needed to be said, all of you are heroes and all of you all are the backbones of our democracy," he said.
